Piano Sundays: Uriel Tsachor and Studio
Now in its 12th year, the Piano Sundays concert series at the Old Capitol Museum has showcased the most talented University of Iowa faculty and students in the Piano Area in the UI School of Music. Each concert is supported by West Music of Coralville and presents a unique set of musical selections ranging from Bach to Bartok, Jenni to Ginastera, Mozart to Mussorgsky and more!
This concert (2/6) will feature Dr. Uriel Tsachor along with his students Hsin-Hui Liu, Ronald Lau, and Heqing Huang. Tsachor will be performing the Max Reger's transcription of Brahms's Symphony No. 2, Op. 73 –2nd movement, and Lau will be performing Theodor Kirchner's transcription of Schumann's Symphony No. 2 in C Major, Op. 61. Both transcription pieces will, for the first time, be performed in Iowa.
Open to the public in 1976 as a National Historic Landmark and museum presenting early University of Iowa and territorial and state history, the Old Capitol Museum is honored to offer this special ongoing musical series that highlights the rich sounds of the beautifully restored 1878 Steinway Centennial Style Concert Grand. The Steinway was purchased in 2006 with an in-kind donation from West Music and has been featured in over 150 performances in the historic Senate Chamber.
The concert is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited so please arrive early.
